Today, as you sit around the table and prepare to indulge in the annual favorites - sweet potatoes with marshmallows, mashed potatoes with extra butter, cornbread sausage stuffing, pumpkin pie, and of course the crème de la crème , turkey – I hope you take time to consider what it really means to give thanks.
Being thankful is not reserved for a particular Thursday in November. Nor is it just something you think about before a meal, or maybe at the end of the day. Gratitude should be reflected in the way you think, act, and react, everyday.
In my life I am loved by so many wonderful people. I have always had more than what I needed. And I’ve never had more than I could handle. I know I haven’t earned even half of the blessing in my life, which leads me to believe that there is someone to be thankful to.
"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever." Psalm 107:1
Even when I face struggles, I choose to give thanks continually.
May your day be filled with joy as you celebrate with loved ones.
